Young Basile is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Erik Chmelar as a Lawyer in the firm.

Dr. Chmelar is a subject-matter expert in digital semiconductors and hardware/software systems. He captures and monetizes innovation through invention harvesting, patent drafting, opinion drafting (infringement, validity), assertions (claim charting), portfolio strategy, and licensing. Dr. Chmelar’s creative thinking and sound judgment gets results. For example, he authored an opinion that defined a key technical term of U.S. export law, resulting in a billion-dollar increase in quarterly revenues for the semiconductor equipment industry.
